Even on a windy foggy day, it was a fun lunch. Barbecued oysters are a must! And for those who don't like those, there was a great cheese plate, with amazing pickled golden raisins as a condiment, and lovely bread. Good beers, too!

We had a great oyster picnic at this beautiful spot on a Thursday afternoon. During the week, you can order shuck-your-own oysters and sit at the communal picnic tables, no reservation required. I've heard this place gets very busy on weekends, but you can reserve tables with grills in advance.

We picked up bread, cheese, preserves and a bottle of rose at Tomales Bay Foods in Pt Reyes Station. There is also a snack bar at Hog Island if you prefer to order items there, with lots of great foods from local producers. The $5 per person picnic fee includes gloves, shucking knife and condiments. Our delicious oysters (a dozen Sweetwaters and a dozen Kumamotos) were about $15/dozen.

We had heard of this place and planned to eat oysters there on our way up the coast to Santa Rosa. We stopped. I guess we hit it on the wrong day at the wrong time. There were limited options for eating and some oysters were not available. We passed and went on up a mile or so north and ate at Nick's Cove. Maybe next time.

Beautiful setting- everyone there very friendly. We bought 2 dozen oysters with the picnic fee, total $35. Bring your own drinks. You will sit at picnic tables and most likely share the table with other folks.

YES, whether your going to picnic on the deck, or just pick up great fresh oysters, this is the place to stop, You wont be disappointed, sure wish we stopped here first before NICKS COVE. We picked up oysters to take home, and they were delicious.
